Connolly supplied most of the leather for the British car industry, including but not limited to Aston Martin & Lagonda, Rolls-Royce & Bentley, Jaguar & Daimler, and Rover cars including its Land Rover and Range Rover vehicles as well as some MG and Mini models during the Rover Group era. Non-British makes included Ferrari and Maserati, Lincoln and Lexus. This leather was also used for the seats in the Supermarine Spitfires used in World War 2.
An attempt to expand into the American market in the 1990s failed badly and Connolly Leather ceased trading in June 2002. However, in 2003, Jonathan Connolly established C B Leather Ltd and resumed the manufacture and production of high quality leather and now sells under both C B Leather and Connolly.

Calfskin is a leather or membrane produced from the hide of a calf. Calfskin is particularly valuable because of its softness, and fine grain, as well as durability.

In Spanish, the word is “Novillo”, referring to leather from animals less than three years old. Chickenskin, despite its name, is actually a form of calfskin made using the skin of unborn calves.
In fashion, soft finished calfskin is sometimes described as veau velours (French for “velvet calf”).Fine calfskin is one of the skins used for vellum and parchment manuscripts.Full-grain leather refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed (as opposed to top-grain or corrected leather) to remove imperfections (or natural marks) on the surface of the hide.
The grain remains allowing the fiber strength and durability. The grain also has breathability, resulting in less moisture from prolonged contact. Rather than wearing out, it develops a patina during its expected useful lifetime. High quality leather furniture and footwear are often made from full-grain leather. Full-grain leathers are typically available in two finish types:aniline, semi-aniline.
Kudu is an antilope from southern Africa, whose skins have unique characteristics. This interesting finished leather is soft suede on the reverse side and a nubuck on the grain side.

On the grain side, there are interesting natural blemishes which have been highlighted by processing the skin as a nubuck. There are scars and cuts on both sides, which are more superficial than structural. However, these characteristics make a unique casual appearance, especially in the stich-down construction.
The Mohawk leather is tanned to be used on the flesh side (flesh-out) in order to maximise the impact of texture, and of the natural “break” (when flexed), which typically looks best on the reverse side of the hide.
The leather is finished with white wax, which will readily burnish, and will start to drop in the leather at temperature in excess of 60C.
